I got nothin'

Sad news as I just found out From Hockey to Hollywood in Toronto closed it's doors. I have bought a couple things there this year, and thought it would become a regular place to go, so unfortunate that I don't have that option anymore. Given it was right beside a Tim Horton's and space wise, it would be easy for Timmies to take up the whole space, I'm going to guess this may happen there soon. I'll have to keep an ear to the ground and see if they open somewhere else...

Can't always have things go the way you want...which continues with the highlights today...


Yeah - that's it. Garnett because, after getting one finally to complete the base set, here is another. I think I am actually getting fairly close on a second full 90 card base set...I will have to look at it. The other highlight - who can argue with Jerry Rice, one of the greatest receivers in NFL history (I am biased - only football I really followed had me enjoy Montana/Rice and the Buffalo Bills).

The rest

So does Jackie Slater's card show that the man works so hard to push himself to the brink and needs oxygen - or is it sad that the best photo they had was this versus an action shot?

Guess not much else to discuss today since these are nothing new and not sets I care for. Can't win them all. I am going to guess tomorrow will be better though....

  1. I was sad to hear Hockey to Hollywood closed. I have them on Facebook and they announced the closing there

    1. Yeah - I didn't follow the account on Facebook or Twitter, just checked in at times and missed it.
